friends in the delegation.
Maine— Maine is in favor of the reaf
firmation of the Chicago platform as a
whole, said L. M. Staples of that delega
tion. which arrived to-day. The Maine
delegates probably will follow New York's
lead as to Vice President.
Oklahoma.— The rival Oklahoma delega
tions, rivals over local differences only,
arrived to-day. All of them desire to sup
port some New Yorker for Vice President,
and favor a reaffirmation Of the financial
plank in the Chicago platform, rather
than a specific declaration,
Alabama.— "We are for 16 to 1, first,
last and all the time,” said R. J. Lowe
of Birmingham, when the delegation from
Alabama came in. "We are for a plank
in the platform to that effect, and if any
candidate for either the first or second
place on the ticket should ask any con
cession in that regard, the chances are
that we would be against him. We will
fight for it in the convention if necessary.
From ail we hear, however; we are cer
toin there will be in the platform a specific
declaration for the ratio.
"On the vice presidential proposition
me are for Hill of New York, although
there ore several members of the delega
tion, who favor other men than Hill. But
the majority of our delegates are for him.
We are for him, however, only on the
understanding that he is to demand no
concessions in the platform. If he asks
that 16 to 1 be placed in the background
or left out of the platform, then we are
for somebody else.”
Delaware—The Delaware delegates, with
no unit rule to bind them to the unani
mous support of a particular candidate,
will probably divide their vote on the
vice presidential nomination. Delegate
Harrington said to-day that two members
of the delegation favored the nomination
of Towne and the insertion In the plat
form of a flat declaration In favor of
"The majority, however," said he, “fa

Mr. Harrington added that he believed

or Congressman Sulzer would he satis

Maryland—Nearly all the members of
the Maryland delegation, headed by Gov.
Smith, arrived to-day. They declined to

of five Chicago financial plank he regarded
as e splitting of hairs. As to the vice
presidency, he could not answer for the
other delegates, but he favored Towne.
Alaska.—Either a simple reaffirmation
of the Chicago platform or the leaving out
altogether of the 16 to 1 plank, is favored

who arrived here, to-doy. "We are all

Texas—The Texas .delegation will ar

trains. Lee Blanchette and D. P. Wheat
comprised the advance guard, which ar
rived to-night. According to both gen
tlemen, they were instructed for Bryan,
and that, of course, implied that their
delegation would consider no deviation
from the straight path of 16 to 1. On the
vice presidency no choice, "as far as
known, had been made by the delega
tion, and none wilt be made until the
state caucus, to be held to-morrow.
Virginia—One delegate from Virginia
arrived to-night, the banalnce of the dele

lone delegate on the ground is C. Man

the entire delegation, but said there was
no doubt whatever that the Virginia dele

VAN WICK'S PLATFORM.
The New Yorker Submitted n Flank
to Sonttiern Delegation"*
Kansas City, July 2.—Judge Augustus
\lu> Wyck of New York haa a draft of
" platform which has been submitted to
the Southern delegates and is said to
have met with some favor with them. The
document reaffirms the Chicago platform
and practically confines Itself to three
questions—trusts. Imperialism and the
tariff, it says:
“In reaffirming the principles declared
In the platform adopted four years ago,

arisen in the meantime, and are not io
• S,oO<l “ ,urnin * °r faces from
tbejmob.ems that now most urgently cou
f ont the country to those which, though
rightly emphasized by the Chteago con
vention have been for the present some
what shorn of their urgency by the course
of recent events. When the very llte of
free institutions is at stake, we think it
incumbent upon all patriots to waive
their lesser differences to the end that
their united strength may be exerted
against the common enemy."
As to trusts the platform declares that
in the nation. In the several states and
in every municipality the Democracy,
through all its organizations, will wage
unremitting war for the stamping out of
these conspiracies to re-establish under
ne forms of trod*. the power of the
few io rule and rob the many. If the
laws already on the statute books be
found inadequate to the work before us,
we shall enact laws that will admit of
no excuse for official inactivity.”
With reference to imperialism, there is
"We make a clear distinction between
expansion and imperialism. Bv the
former, we mean that jus* demand of a
rapidly-growing people, distinguished In
highest degree for skill In manufactures,
enterprise in commerce and unrivaled ca
pacity in agriculture, for access to ever
enlarging markets; while, by the latter,
we mean that un-American spirit which
would Identify our flag with tyranny, re
pudiate the principles upon which the
republic was founded and commit us to
the abhorrent task of stifling with the
bayonet the natural aspirations of weaker
communities for liberty. There are nec
essary measures to be taken alike in the
Philippines and China for the mainte
nance of the commercial interests of this
republic, as well as for the effective ex
ercise of our naval and military author
ity in the Pacific ocean, and these the
Democratic party will, withfcut violating
any principle, either of our own Declara
tion of Independence or the right of other
people, not hesitate to fake; hut we pro
test against the monstrous pretense that,
in order to secure the objects here indi
cated, we must invalidate our own cla m
to existence as a nation.”
The tariff plank declares that "tariff
reform Is called for over the entire circle
of our so-called protected Industries.”

BRYAN DECLARED FOR 10 TO 1.
Strong Ftterunces in a Speech to
Lincoln. Neb., July 2.—With the return
to Kansas City this morning of ex-Sena
tor David B. Hill, and with lilm J. <l.
McGuire and Eugene Hughes of Syracuse,
N. Y., the gentlemen w(io have been clos
est to Mr. Bryan In the consultations over
the platform and vice presidency, the con
ference stage at the Bryan home has given
way to the more spectacular features.
These began to-day with the arrival of
the Colorado delegation, accompanied by
visitors to the number of over 100.
So far as the platform which Mr. Bryan
favors is concerned, it it supposed to have
been entrusted to Senator Hill to manage
it at the Kansas City end. The vice pres
idency is not so clear, but the develop
ments of the day seemed to emphasize
the belief that Congressman Suizcr Is no
longer In the running. Senator Hill and
District Delegates Hughes ami McGuire
are not for him. Among the Lincoln
crowd, now that the Nebraska delegates
themselves, who are for Towne, have
gone, the name of Carter Harrison Is
more frequently mentioned than that of
any other second place possibility. Mayor
"Harrison, it is asserted, would be accept i
ble to Mr. Bryan, hut U is believed that
not even to his Intimates has he expressed
a leading preference as to hit running
The new front porch of the Bryan
home received Its real dedication to-day.
The Colorado contingent, over 100 strong,
and including most of the delegates, stop
ped over from 8 o'clock until neon and
visited Mr. Bryan In a body.
In response to an address from a mem
ber of the delegation. Mr. Bryan said: "I
thank you for this friendly call, and as
sure you I appreciate your good will and
kindly Interest, and 1 am sure that the
citizens of Lincoln join with me wheiwji
say that I am glad to see you here.
”1 am sure that Colorado people are no
more anxious for the realization of the
principles of the Dftn craslc pLt.orm tna i
are the people of many other states But
1 want to say to you that when Colorado
forsakes the principle of 16 to 1. and when
the people have ceased In their support ot
tbe principle, I will still be found fighting,
even though alone.
“The Republicans held their national
convention at Philadelphia on the anni
versary of the founding of their party,
thereby exhibiting a partisan spirit. The
Democrats hold their convention in Kan
sas City on July 4. the anniversary of the
birth of the nation, thereby manifesting
a patriotic spirit. The Republicans would
repeal the Declaration of Independence,
the Democrats would reaffirm It every
where throughout the world.
"There Is one great principle to he
fought for In the coming campaign, and
that is whether or not the dollar shall be
placed above the man. Where man and
the dollar come in conflict, and tbe Re
publican party stands for the dollar first,
the Democrats stand for the man. Where
there was one reason In 1896 for carrying
Colorado’s Democratic ticket there are
sixteen reasons now.
"The Democratic party stands for the
same prineiplese, in the North as well ns
in the South, the East as well as in the
West. Ours ia a party whose speakers do
not have to revise their speeches for each
section of the country they visit."
Mr. Bryan was vociferously applauded
at the conclusion of his address.
GEORGIA DELEGATES MET.

position in the delegation to a> platform
which indorses in letter and spirit the
platform of ’96, Hon. Clark Howell was
indorsed as national committeeman from
Georgia. Louis F. Garrard was chosen as
the Georgia member ot the Committee on
Platform, and Price. Gilbert for commit
teeman on rules. The delegation Is unan

Chicago, July 2.—Regarding the vice
presidential situation, Mayor Harrison
made the following statement before leav
ing for Kansas City this afternoon:
"I am not a candidate, I do not think
the convention will play arty favorites.
I am In favor of nominating an Eastern
man, and I believe one will be nominated
It weuld be discourteous for me to say I
would not accept the nomination If it is

Kansas City, July 2.—Til* placidity of

the closing hours to-day by statements
from. Gen. A. J. Warner of Ohio, who
was a volunteer speaker, taking the time
and place which had been assigned to Mr.
Sulzer, who failed to appear. Gen. War
ner was introduced by ex-Gov. St. John,
who called him the father of the cause of
free silver. Warner caused the first flut
ter of excitement by saying that so far
as he knew, there was no proposition to
change the ratio of coinage. The live
question of ehe hour, he added, is to get
silver restored to Its former place, where
it would have the same rights ay gold.
”1 don't care anything about Ihe ratio
of 16 to I," he said. “Get silver restored,"
he added, “catch your hare first, then cook
It. Regulate silver automatically and you

Mr. Berry of Pennsylvania Interrupted
and asked if Gen. Warner was not giving

Before Gen. Warner could reply Mr.

in which he said that after three years

“Coin” Harvey Spoke,
Mr. Harvey was Introduced as the first
speaker. His subject was "The Connec

forty years there had been organized in
this country a band of money lenders.
They meet annually and have finally suc
ceeded In cornering the supply of money
and controlling W. By the act of the last
Congress, the government had gone out
of the business of issuing paper money,
except as It was called for by the or
ganization to which he referred. Money
in the hands of this organization was
money to loan, and in this respect the
object for which money was made is di
verted. The scale of wages, he said, has
not declined very much, but this had
been nullified by strikes and labor agi
tations, the results of the trusts and
money lenders’ organization. The Re
publican administration was also respon
sible for an Increasing tenantry system
in this country.
The fight for civilization was now on hy
the Democratic party. It was more de

never be given up until it won. The
prosperity of which the Republican par

Poughkeepsie. N. Y., July 2.—The 'Var
sity four-oar event of the annual regatta
of the Inter-collegiate Rowing Associa
tion, was wort to-day by Pennsylvania in
the fast time of 10 minutes, 31 1-5 seconds.
Columbia was second, three and a half
lengths, official time, 10:38. Cornell, 300
feet back, her crew exhausted and her
bow man, Brlnkerhoff, in u helpless faint,
came to a stop in the eel gram, fifty feat
from the west bank of the river.
The water conditions were perfect, but
only a handful of people saw the contest.
It was a rare filled with spectacular fea
tures entirely unlooked for in eo short
a row. Pennsylvania and Cornell wetsa
nip and tuck for the first half-mile. Be

mile, Cornell and Columbia were both out
of their courses. Urged by Referee Arm

gained their place In Ihe course, making a
pretty spurt as they did so, Just below th*
At this point there was seen to b*
trouble In the front of the Cornell ohall,
and the boat pointed slightly toward th*
west hank of the river. The Pennsylvania
men hit It up a little as they neared th#
last 'half-mile and prevented the Colum

work, from overhauling them. Refer##
Armstrong shouted again and again
through his megaphone for the Cornall
crew' to get into their course, but soon all
Ihoec aboard the referee’s boat saw this
was useless. The Cornell bow oar, Brlnk

raise his oar from the water; No, 3 waa

A rowboat took their shell in tow, and
the men were taken to meet the Cornell
launch where the bow oarsman was laid
out half unconscious and covered with
coat* and sweaters.
Pennsylvania h* thus won the 'varsity
and the four-oar races of this year's to
gatta. Columbia lias secured one secondl
while Cornell has been forced to take third
place In two everbs and been unable to
finish in the third. The result fairly hears
out what many thought from Coach
Courtney's attitude upon hi* arrival here,
namely. Hist the .Cornell men were at that
lime about at Ihe fine point In thetr train
ing and that they ail went stale before tho
race was rowed. The fact that Brlnker

and that Beyer gave out, shows the phys

been far beyond the point required for
